Stardust Creatures
Stardust Creatures
"
Stardust Creatures grew out of a weekly jam session in New York City, and quickly began performing at basements, backyards and rooftops. The project solidified during a self-produced recording session at an old house in Long Island, where the first Stardust Creatures demos were recorded. Ever since, the band has been performing at venues all around the NYC area, and currently operates out of Brooklyn. Their music combines elements of post punk, psych rock and synthpop with lyrics about UFOS, ghosts and drugs."

“My songs process my feelings of nostalgia, and the passion and desire I have buried deep inside to take risks and break free from the comfort of the past,” confides indie-pop songwriter Joe Wood.

Joe shrouds his lyrics in a wash of dreamy synthscapes, jagged guitars, rugged hip-hop beats, and sharp pop hooks. His words capture the mania, anxiety, and alienation of being a 20-something artist in New York City. His addictive pop sensibility is like an opiate; tranquilizing the jittery effects of heartbreak and disappointment. Joe counts Bleachers, LANY, Robyn, and Charli XCX as influences. He writes, produces, tracks, and performs his cinematic electro-pop in his apartment studio in Brooklyn. He brings a homespun DIY approach to his tracks nurtured from his early trial and error experiments splicing together hip-hop samples when he was in middle school and high school. Therefore, Joe favors a limited toolkit of affordable gear, stock synth sounds, drum samples, and a guitar to build his richly layered pop compositions.

Unlike many bedroom visionaries, Joe is an unabashed natural performer. “Sitting in front of the computer meticulously producing tracks is not exciting for me,” he says with a good-natured laugh. “My favorite place to be is onstage. There, there is no filter and there is no insecurity—onstage is where I show people who I really am.”
